Fort Worth, TX to Carlsbad, NM

The next leg had its surprises. Such as rest stop warnings and memorials.

With acres of wind turbines along the way!

The landscape slowly shifted throughout the trip and we ended up taking a less traveled road through oil country to Carlsbad. Not many photos of that part of the drive. It sure reminded me how much I love the wide open skies that the flatlands bring. We made it safe and sound to a campground just outside of Carlsbad, NM

And we finally got to try out the new “camper setup”.

One thing about camping (especially this time of year) is that you get to appreciate the sunsets.

Not to mention, early to bed. Tomorrow the Carlsbad Caves before heading to Las Cruces to connect with a dear friend, Kay.

Leila appreciates that down is so warm.
